Trailer of the Day: KILL BILL, VOL. 1

kill bill snow

A revenge tale with a female protagonist, blood-gushing fight scenes, animation interwoven with live action, the song “Shura No Hana” (“Flower of Carnage”)…. Quentin Tarantino pays homage to the original LADY SNOWBLOOD (also screening) by transplanting much of the film’s narrative and aesthetics into his modern story of The Bride (Uma Thurman). Formerly a member of the Deadly Viper Assassination Squad, The Bride tries to leave the assassin’s life behind when she becomes pregnant with the child of her ruthless boss, Bill (David Carradine). But Bill and his minions (Lucy Liu, Vivica A. Fox, Daryl Hannah, and Michael Madsen) shoot her down, killing her baby and leaving her in a coma that lasts four years. When she wakes, The Bride embarks on her own quest for revenge. (111 mins.)

KILL BILL, VOL. 1 screens Sunday, December 1 at 7pm in our Whitsell Auditorium (located in the Portland Art Museum).  The film is being presented as part of our Samurai Cinema series.

Advanced tickets are available for purchase here.
